My folks live, quite literally, on the side of the hill; their home overlooks one of the flood control and recreational lakes built by the Tennessee Valley Authority (or TVA). Surrounding their property is a chain link fence and gate to keep their several pet dogs well contained. A visit entails parking by the road and walking up several concrete steps to the house. Not long after installing the fence, Dad installed this bell by the gate for visitors to ring if they didn’t want to brave walking all the way up the hill (or if they were concerned about all the little dogs running around in the yard). It was already old (Dad found it at a flea market) when installed, and I think it has weathered quite nicely!
